The fun theme for this month’s Pet Treater subscription box is “Bark’ToberFest”. We’ve had different kind of celebrations going on for our Barktober, however. Even though we previously used a birthday theme for one of our past reviews – for Cricket’s birthday back in September – what was included in the Barktober box was just too good to pass up for Luke’s birthday.

Luke turned 3 yesterday, and by old dog aging formulas (1 human year = 7 dog years), that would make him 21! Even though we know the new formulas would make him around 30, I just had to have some fun with this.
Luke being 21 in dog years gives new meaning to the expression seen on wine glasses and t-shirts: “It’s not drinking alone if the dog is home”.
The Bowser Beer and bandana reading “Drinking Buddy” included in this month’s box gave me the perfect opportunity to sit down and have a drink with my now adult dog! BTW, Bowser Beer is Made in the USA, and the Pork Pug Porter flavor we received even contains glucosamine for healthy joints!
Meaty snacks from PetSafe’s Indigo line – Smokehouse Strips – were the perfect accompaniment for Luke’s birthday celebration! These treats are Made in the USA from premium cuts of meat, and contain no by-products. We received chicken and bacon flavors, and they were a HUGE hit with the crew! Also, look at the size of the beef knuckle from Nature’s Deli!
The other day I showed what I was working on for birthday treats for both Sheba and Luke’s celebrations this week. We had received a PuppyCake cheesecake mix in last month’s box, and I was saving it for their birthdays. It worked out perfectly that this month’s box had the Jack-O-Lantern silicone mold and matching spatula, so I made the cheesecakes right in there. Look how fun they came out, and the crew went nuts for them!
No party would be complete without fun and games, and the two toys included fit the bill. Both the Monsters Dog Toy and the stuffy bone with breast cancer awareness ribbon came from Bow-Wow Pet Products.
Alas, celebrations are soon over and all that’s left are the happy memories. Luckily we also received this great over the door Pet Organizer from PetStor. That’s a gift that will keep on giving, especially to one very disorganized Momz. Since we moved into our new home, I’ve been getting slowly organized, but I haven’t worked my way up to pet supplies yet. I think I have things scattered in 3-4 different locations, and I need help getting more organized! I look forward to finding the perfect spot for this and then loading up the 6 deep pockets.
Guess what? We are currently having a huge giveaway to celebrate Luke’s sister Sheba’s 12th birthday, and you can have a chance to win a Pet Treater box of your own, and we also have one of those organizers along with some other prizes to give away.

I’m still enjoying this post! Shadow’s box arrived last week and I put it aside after I opened it. I love that organizer – it almost reminds me of the over-the-door shoe organizers I always used when I was growing up back home on Long Island. Now all I need to do is to find some place to hang it. I love your wine glass! Wherever did you get it??
I’ve got to figure out a way to package the Bowser Beer so I can ship it to MK for Bentley. I’d be a bit wary of giving it to my girls. And I think I’ll send the beef knuckle to my brother for my dog nephew.
What a sweet idea to send the Bowser beer to Melissa!
I’m going to drop our beef knuckle in the box for the humane society next time I go grocery shopping. I’m sure Luke would love it, but I can see arguments breaking out over it here.
That wine glass was made for me by a close friend of mine. She does tole painting and has done a lot of wine glasses for me as well as some other household items. I’m always telling her should sell her products at craft fairs, etc., but she won’t!

What a great paw-ty! We have our paws crossed for the giveaway. I tweeted the Bowser Beer folks but they don’t sell it anywhere near us
Oh, that’s too bad! They don’t sell it anywhere in our area either, though you can get it online.
Sounds like a fun birthday for everyone involved!
Brian Frum says
Look at you Luke! Hey, I hope you weren’t driving after your drink-a-roo!
Does driving Momz crazy count? BOL!
Lynn LaChance says
What a fun celebration you had there for Luke’s birthday, Jan!! I should have invited myself over, lol! Love that your wine glass has the pawprints! It all looked so fun-oh yeah, and the pumpkin birthday treats came out awesome looking, and that all the dogs enjoyed them is even better! Really cute pictures, oh, and Luke drinking his beer-looking right at the camera while enjoying his drink-too cute! Although he almost looks like-wait, AM I old enough to do this now legally?? Ha-ha!
LOL! You would have been more than welcome to join the party! Next year we’ll have you!
The Island Cats says
We loved seeing Luke drinking the Bowser Beer! We hope he didn’t have a hangover in the morning. 😉
We made sure he didn’t over-indulge. Plus they only sent us one bottle, which he shared with his sisters – LOL!
It sounds like this was the perfect box for Luke’s birthday! I love the way your cheesecakes turned out. Even though Halloween will be over, maybe we’ll use our for some Thanksgiving snacks to share with Bar’s cousin. The picture of Luke trying his beer might be my new favorite picture of him!
We got a bunch of pretty good photos, and I had a tough time choosing which one to use!
I’d hate to only use that mold once a year, so I think for Thanksgiving too is a great idea.

Oh man! How cool you had an awesome birthday
